This is the site of the Old Marvel Slab. Years ago a Coal mining company laid rows of culverts across the river and poured cement on top to allow coal to be hauled to market in times of high water. This made a drowning machine. A couple of years ago it was removed. Launch is dirt bank. The river is shoal/pool.
